  • 1.5kg King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes, peeled
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • Sprigs of rosemary
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
  • Cut the potatoes into even-sized chunks. Cook in a large pan of salted boiling water for 7 minutes.
  • Spoon the oil into a large roasting tin and place in the oven to heat up.
  • Drain the potatoes into a colander. Shake the potatoes to dry and roughen the edges so to give them a crispy coating.
  • When the oil is sizzling, remove from the oven and carefully add the potatoes to the hot roasting tin.
  • Spoon the oil over the potatoes for even covering and sprinkle with salt and rosemary. 
  • Return to the top of the oven for 45-50 minutes, basting and turning once or twice during cooking, until golden and crispy.
